The PinkTentacle.com offered this photo of the Aso Farm Land resort village in Kyushu Japan, which uses about 480 styrofoam domes as lodging, recreational facilities and retail space. Although it may look like somebody had too many magic mushhrooms, and modular design is quite rational.

    SHIT Taro, you live in Denenchofu–the Beverly Hills of Japan– and you still have 3rd World overhead wires and concrete everywhere.

    It’ll be eons before Tokyo turns into the green paradise of Hobbiton…
    In the Meantime, monkeys will get lost in Shibuya:

    Actually, that photo was Minnie Mouse’s house in Toontown*, Walt Disney World’s Kingdom, Orlando, Florida, and the photo was taken at a stretched, unrealistic angle. Minnie’s house used to look like this…

    *Toontown was torn down last year to make room for the expansion and renewal Fantasyland. Refer to: etckt.com/2011/02/13/toontown-no-more

    But never fear!
    Tokyo Disneyland still has Toontown and an even cuter Minnie Mouse house! ;-)

    Minnie's House is easy to find, just look out for the pretty purple roof. The outside and the interior are all perfectly romantic and cute! Have a peek into her bedroom and kitchen! Her house is just full of charm.
    At Minnie's House you're welcome to explore every nook and cranny. Go to the kitchen and look inside the refrigerator. What do you see inside? And what happens when you touch the oven or the dishwasher? Don't forget to toss a coin into the wishing well in the backyard; you'll get to hear a special message from Minnie.

    However, Hello Kitty’s new pink retirement housing is located in the next block south of the old place.

    Denenchofu sure loses its charm without the pink Hello Kitty House to liven things up
